This is a personal piece for my home.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I would like to have a custom piece of artwork made of my pet. Her name is Nala and she is a one of a kind very special Bengal Cat. I am attaching some photos of her to the description for your inspiration.
I am an artist myself, mainly traditional oil and Acrylic painting. However, I would like an outside perspective or different creative direction for this piece.
There are lots of creative ideas for pet portraits out there. I would like to keep the contest broad and see what people come up with. If anybody is considering drawing them as royalty I would like to suggest Egyptian motifs and not European Royalty/mythology.
Lastly, my personal favorite art styles are mainly pop art. Some of my favorite artists and artwork styles are also attached to get a feel for my personal taste. I collect mainly contemporary pop art although my favorite style has always been surrealism. Dali has always been one of my all time favorite artists. If the winning designer is a traditional artist as well I am happy to discuss having the piece commissioned as a painting when it Is complete :)
I look forward to seeing what people come up with!
I am always open to things that pop and are different. I would rather see something pushing the creative boundaries than playing it safe. Something that will always be entertaining to look ay and enjoy.
